Ma

The Bridge
Living is like crossing a bridge. Is it possible that what looks like it is part of a cityscape is in fact a living being? Just like people, it is born, it lives an eventful life, it experiences its fate and its quiet forsaken aging, and then it inevitably dies. Meet Kyiv’s Rybalski Bridge and its memories.

The town of records and curiosities
  Pelhřimov is only a small town in the Vysočina region, but also the town of records and curiosities, the town of a large jacket and giant dishes, the town of devils and ghosts. Is it multicultural? Is it tolerant?

They Flew There with Zeppelin
What is hiding behind the walls of the closely guarded building near Smržová u Hradce Králové? The town’s residents have lived with indifference to the goings-on at the facility at their backs. The filmmaker provoked a debate which led to new information, rumors, and fantasies that have accumulated for years around the functioning of the place.

Seeing Prague
A personal documentary about the (im)possibility of living in the center of Prague. The filmmaker and her five-year-old-son received an eviction notice from City Hall ordering them to leave the one-room apartment in which her grandfather lived for almost thirty years. The film illustrates the impact that mass tourism and City Hall’s housing policy have on the capita city’s inhabitants.

A Few Words about Disobedience
In the Czech Republic, where democracy is on the decline and a populist movement rules, it may seem as if the issue of climate change has been relegated to the background. The environmental initiative   Limity jsme my / The Limits Are Us uses civic disobedience, whereby the participants knowingly break the law, to draw attention to this problem. Disobedience, which traditionally bears a negative connotation, is a path towards emancipation and change.

Tinnitus
Is it possible to do anything about ringing in the ears? This film seeks sources of noise in the urban landscape. It follows the sound traces surrounding the author, the hum of engines over the clatter of railways, the clock ticking at home, and his own tinnitus.

Another Perspective
This film shot on 17 November 2016 – Struggle for Freedom and Democracy Day, a traditional day of public demonstrations – looks at the meaning of this public holiday by talking to various people who merely enjoy their day off and do not go to any protests. Their responses are juxtaposed with video from the all-seeing cameras of police helicopters.
